The Kinetic Smart Control Power Unit installs in minutes and is the most affordable and convenient option for anyone looking to upgrade their current Kinetic Rock and Roll or Road Machine trainer frame to our most advanced, resistance-controlled power training experience. 

KURT KINETIC SMART CONTROL POWER UNIT 

The Kurt Kinetic Rock ‘n’ Roll trainer has been my primary mode of indoor miles and virtual miles over the last three years encompassing well over 17,000 miles. The inRide Power system was the next level for Kurt Kinetic and power mechanics which are essential for cyclists and the newest upgrade of the Smart Control trainer was the missing element. The Smart Control unit gives the cyclist ability to travel anywhere in the world virtually with a very responsive/true road feel that is Bluetooth smart with a massive 14.4 pounds flywheel. This smart control retrofits on my 2.0 Rock and Roll 2.0 simply and easily in just a few minutes. The Smart Control works with all compatible Bluetooth Apps including the Kinetic fit which gives you well over 200 workouts along with Zwift, TrainerRoad, Rouvy (formerly Virtual Training) and of course my favorite the Sufferfest. While the Smart Control Trainer is costly at around $449, it is more affordable when purchased with the Rock and Roll or Road Machine trainers.  The Smart Control Power option has a unconditional two-year guarantee on the unit while the trainer themselves have a lifetime guarantee. The Smart Control Power Unit is a excellent resistance unit, highly responsive with a true virtual road feel, Bluetooth connectivity for the ability to ride anywhere in the world without the travel expense or the environmental issues.
